I uh, accidentally bought another army yesterday. It's a Salamanders army, all Forge World infantry 25+ models. 4 drop pods, 2 Rhinos, Vulkan, 5 TH/SS terminators and some other bits. I'm thinking of touching up the paint a bit and selling them ;)

Haha ;)

I managed to get a pic up of my test model for my Renegade Guard/Cultists. I'm happy with it, and it was pretty fast...maybe 20-25 minutes? As I do them, I'm sure it will get even faster. I will go over this dude again later, and paint all the trappings to be flayed flesh :)

Recipe:

Prime FoW Italian Armor
Wash Army Builder Strong Tone
Highlight Zandri Dust (drybrush Underhive Ash? Try Both?)
Wash Army Builder Soft Tone
(Done?)

The wife and I have been watching Homeland voraciously, we've just started and blazed through 12 episodes. This is a nice way to spend time drilling and chipping armor for my Maulerfiend ;) No pics yet, there isn't much to cohesively take a pic of. I'm waiting to pick up my big GW order tomorrow, and then some work in earnest will begin.

Anyone think the above would do for tabletop IG? I'm about to go prime some up for painting ;)

Following up in a long week of spending too much money, I went to an auction today. I bought:

A Necron army
A DKoK NoS army
A FW Malcador
A big bag of Marine bits and bobs
A Skaven Screaming Bell
Crusade of FIre
A SUPER HUGE lot of oop Dark Eldar
Heroes of the Adeptus Astartes
BLOOD BOWL!
A Shoebox full of A Game of Thrones CCG cards.

I have a lot of painting to do, though I'm having buyers remorse on everything but the Malcador and Blood Bowl ;) I'm probably going to sell it all, as we need a new dishwasher. I'm also going to be in big trouble with my wife when she sees the bill...


Tonite I based:

A Necron Lord
6 Flayers
6 Scarab Bases
2 Wraiths
31 Necrons

I also touched up the paint on a few models.

Last week, I painted the base color on my first IG infantry squad. I'm going to do another this week, and do some more finishing work on the Maulerfiend. I should be going into turbo mode with it, the last of the bits I need come in tomorrow for it.

It's the Katana ;)

Here is a group shot after an hour of painting. They won't survive much scrutiny, at least until I get the details painted on. I've been working on practicing some freehand for them.

They will have that dirty, living in a trench look which is almost exactly how I envisioned it. They will be accented with black and red, and on the shoulderpads they will have their warband marking 'The Crooked Cross'. I'll also be doing some heavily patinad bronze for the metals.

I have tons of details to pick out, but for me that's the easy part. I'm going to paint a few more squads, and see how many I can get done in between working on my Maulerfiend. I've been feeling the painting bug!
